Assisted Living Reviews for Benchmark Senior Living at Woburn

January 06, 2017

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My mother is at Benchmark Senior Living at Woburn and has been for the last month. It’s very nice, clean, and brand new. The people are so nice and friendly. She has not been doing well mentally, but it’s been the last couple of weeks that she was really taken of. She’s met some good people there her own age; they’ve really bonded, and she is a completely different person. They have different sizes of apartments, and my mother is in a deluxe studio which has plenty of room. She has a little bit of a memory issue, so it’s a perfect size for her. It fits her bedroom furniture, a lovely little couch, and her television. The room is beautifully appointed. It has a little kitchenette and a big beautiful bathroom. They all have to wear a GPS on them on their necklaces. I hadn’t seen this in other facilities when I looked at them. They have a hair salon and a gym. They had a kitchen where they had cooking classes on Saturdays, and a couple of days this week, they baked holiday cookies. Near the lobby, they have a nice sitting area with a big screen TV, and they have their happy hour there at 4 or 4:30 every day with hors d’oeuvres and entertainment. Then they go into dinner where the dining room is adjoined with this room. On each floor, there are a couple of sitting areas where there’s a couch, chairs, and a television, and you can get out of your room and go sit somewhere else. Everybody stays together. My mother can easily go out around the building. They have walking tours where they’ll put them all on a bus and go over to Holland Pond and Winchester or walk around the pond which is nice. This week, they’ve gone to a play. They have TED talks. They have people that come in and every day, they have an hour to talk about the news and have a discussion. They have a church. They’d take folks who want to go to church to church. They have a rosary for a half hour. They have trivia with the receptionist every day. They do a lot of things to keep the intellect stimulated.

I visited this facility

Benchmark Senior Living at Woburn was very nice and very modern. The people that I did meet were very friendly, very open, and nice. I did see their model rooms, and they were very beautiful. They had some snacks, and they were very good as well. Everything was so new; it was very good though. The dining room was very big and very spacious. It was very convenient, and that is why we chose it to visit because of its convenience to where I live and where I am located. The person who I dealt with was very straightforward, very nice, and very upfront. She still showed us the place even though when she first came across some of the numbers, and they were negotiable numbers, but they were just a little too much for me and my parents to handle each month. It was a fantastic facility, they had everything, and they answered every question that we had. I can only imagine that when the facility does open it would be everything that they said it would be.
